Scott Lawlor continues on his journey into post-sixty minute soundscapes with the third in his drone.excursion series. drone.excursion.003 (waag_dex003) aka 'uncertainty of suspense' is a fluid piece ... one that has a sense of movement while retaining an impression of artifice and of the man-made, like it's predecessor. drone.excursion.003 (waag_dex003) is another delightful longform drone from Scott and I really do hope you will enjoy it as much as I have ... I found it a worthwhile journey... Topics: ambient, longform, drone
Sometimes only a longform ambient drone will do. This is a thought that I regularly have when I need to be in *the* zone … the special place that I visit when I need to get deep and concentrate. I am blessed at weareallghosts to have so many options for a soundtrack to this special place … and I am proud to add - "like a pelican of the wilderness" from Scott Lawlor - to my arsenal. It is an utterly beautiful piece … full of light. It is the soundscape for a truly open space.... Topics: ambient, drone, longform
A warm and relaxing conclusion to Scott Lawlor's "Rain" trilogy. Lawlor is host of Stillstream's Blind Flight program. About the album: "In creating this, the final chapter in my Rain Trilogy, I used the same equipment set up which I utilized on the previous two installations. This time, I was influenced by Palancar and his track entitled 'She and I, Watching the Rain'. Where the first rain piece was more ominous with its thunder and organ drone, and the second much colder with...

The thick fog enveloped his figure, a lonely form on a bridge overlooking the river below his feet.The afterlife, it had to be better than this.When had his descent into darkness begun? Had it always been there?Whispering to him hauntingly, beckoning him to embrace it.Desolate in the dark, surrounded by nothing but regret.Wrong turns, the steps that seemed to go nowhere, climbing aimlessly.Out of focus, feeling that there was something more but wondering, yes wondering how to obtain it, and...

A serene organ-drone soundscape, for the "Rain" series, by ambient artist Scott Lawlor, host of Stillstream's Blind Flight program. About the album: "I've been wanting to do something for the rain series for some months now and I've felt for a while that the organ has been underrepresented so-to-speak in the drone/ambient genres. The only other organ set that I know of that's specifically ambient is Problem-Reaction-Solution, which I am quite fond of. Having this in mind, and...

Scott Lawlor, ambient musician and host of The Blind Flight podcast, brings his track "Dark Mind" to buddhist on fire. A drone-scape to provoke your inner darkness. "I saw myself sitting in the crotch of this fig tree, starving to death, just because I couldn't make up my mind which of the figs I would choose.

Times escape was originally recorded between 1996 and 1997 when I lived in the Akron Area of Ohio after years of gigging around playing in coffee houses and being a member of the Very Special Arts group. My inspirations for the cd range from Klaus Schulze, Tangerine Dream but especially the sleep concerts of Robert Rich. I had received one such concert on cassette tape from a friend in the mail and after listening to it while I slept at night, I wanted to try my hand at composing space music. I...

Scott Lawlor, ambient musician and host of The Blind Flight podcast, brings his track "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts" to buddhist on fire. A long form organ drone.From time to time I heard the sound of words, and marked a difference. Because until then, I realized, the words I had heard had been silent. There had been no sound, I had sensed them. But silently, the way you hear words in your dreams.- Juan Rulfo, Pedro Páramo ( 1 reviews ) Topics: scott lawlor, ambient, ambient drone, drone, experimental
“Let no two drones be alike must be Scott's motto....at least thus far. Each drone excursion is markedly different from all others.” So says Brian Bourassa in a comment on Bandcamp. I cannot agree more and with the belated 6th instalment in his drone.excursion series, Scott Lawlor proves, if proof be really needed, this point. “Unquiet Spirits Crossing the Rubicon” is a deeply immersive, full-on longform piece; one that paints mind-pictures of wide, desolate spaces interspersed with the...

Easter is, for some, a period of contemplation; a time for stepping back and reflecting on life, love, death, and resurrection. Whether you observe the Christian faith or not, this time, this Easter time, is precious: from death comes new life, the work is finished, the circle is complete. “Seven Last Words” by Scott Lawlor is a release that will aid you in this deliberation. It will help you to step away from the busyness of today and give you space to ponder the deepest of mysteries,... Topic: ambient, electronica, experimental electronic,

New great release from Scott Lawlor. The Ambient Appliance Series 2 (Spin drone) "In 2013, we got a new washer and dryer and so I decided to create another ambient appliance installation with the washing machine.

"When Mystified made his pluto120 drone available for people to use in their own compositions, I decided to create a long-form ambient piece using this drone as the basic element of the track. I added some winter night sounds I found on freesound.org and clarinet improvisations which I created on the Ensoniq TS-12 synthesizer. I felt that the clarinet was an instrument that could express the mood I was going for, something very cold and remote, two elements which define what, at one...

"Ancient Ocean (waag_rel071)" is a collaboration between versatile ambient musician Scott Lawlor and neo-Krautrock/kosmische act The Gateless Gate (or one half of it, Allister Thompson). Scott’s drones for this piece strongly suggested the ebb and flow of the ocean. However, making yet another oceanic ambient album wasn’t satisfying, so Allister came up with the concept of a primordial ocean, millions of years before the dawn of man. This opened up the door to all sorts of... Topics: ambient, longform, drone, kosmische musik, krautrock, progressive
